<jmd>Anyone feel like reviewing my changes, while Ludo is absent?
<SylvieLorxu>Hey everyone, I saw GNU Guix and it seems interesting, but I wonder, especially seeing the low amout of packages, if it's based on another libre distro, or a non-libre one made libre? Does the package manager need its own repositories because of how different it is, or why are things this way?
<jxself>GNU is not based on another distro, no, but the reverse is true and many distros are based on GNU. :)
<jxself>The low number of packages just means people should go and package more things. :)
<SylvieLorxu>Why call it GNU if it uses the Linux-libre kernel? I'm really confused
<jxself>Linux-libre is also a GNU package. It was made such in 2013 (I think?), so as of then the GNU Operating System had two official kernels, much like it has two desktops: GNOME and GNUstep. :)
<SylvieLorxu>And any issues I may run into with Guix are probably Guix-related
<DusXMT>Sudio problems (hda-intel seels to be causing some troubles), no wifi, possible network configuration mishaps (On certain machines, it tries to configure the network interface before it even becomes available), and probably some more
